ETA - I have entered this in the Mod Squad Challenge Blog Father's Day! This week's sponsor is Kitchen Sink Stamps.
So, I had this idea for a card and I think it pretty much turned out as planned! Woohoo! How often does that happen. I wanted to make a stamped scene with our boys and our furry boy. And this is what I came up with.
I really wanted to try the popped up die cutting from the scene so I knew I would have to shade in the background first which meant I needed to stamp in the boys and dog and mask them. I then airbrushed the background in.
I took the background to my Cameo and cut out the letters. I'm still new with it so I although I slowed it down I should have increased the depth of my blade a little bit for a cleaner cut. As I didn't want to redo the background I just used my xacto knife to ease the cuts. I also cut 3 cuts out of blue cardstock to make the height for the letters. They were nearly perfectly aligned until I had to hide the card for the bazillionth time as the husband kept walking through my craft space.
Next up, the envelope! I didn't want to do the whole scene so our "bagle" make an appearance on the envelope. Because the envelope isn't marker cardstock it bled outside the lines a little but honestly very few people look THAT close, and just notice the overall image.
